At St. Peter’s, we recognise the value of Physical Education and so strive to ensure that all children develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, are physically active for sustained periods of time, engage in competitive sports and activities, and lead healthy, active lives. Every child participates in at least two physical education lessons per week. Specialist sports coaches work with different classes throughout the year, teaching a range of specific sporting skills. Our children are given a wide range of opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Furthermore, every year, all children participate in sports day where the emphasis is on enjoyment, participation and team building, with elements of competitiveness. We teach lessons so that children have fun and experience success in sport, have the opportunity to participate in P.E at their own level of development, secure and build on a range of skills, develop good sporting attitudes, understand basic rules, experience positive competition, learn in a safe environment and gain a foundation for lifelong physical activity. By the time they leave us, the children have developed sport specific skills and are able to apply them with control and precision. They can perform a number of gymnastic skills with and without equipment and can also perform dances fluently and with control. Our intention is that every child has left us having represented the school in a sporting competition to experience what it means to win or lose as a team.
